Gold futures are under pressure late Monday as a surge in demand for risky assets helped dampen its appeal as a safe-haven asset. The catalysts behind the price drop are strong earnings, rising Treasury yields and increasing hope of a trade deal announcement this week.

Although the U.S. Federal Reserve is expected to cut its benchmark interest rate 25 basis points for a third time this year on Wednesday, there is growing concern that this may be the last cut of the year.
